Claudia Webbe Statement Ahead of Westminster Magistrates Court Appearance

Claudia Webbe, who was elected in the 2019 General Election to represent Leicester East in Parliament is appearing today at Westminster Magistrates Court, following a charge of harassment.

Ms Webbe’s legal team comprises Raj Chada, Head of Criminal Defence at leading London social-justice firm Hodge Jones & Allen, and Courtenay Griffiths QC of 25 Bedford Row. They have released the following statement on her behalf:

“Claudia Webbe denies the allegations that have been made against her. This matter has come to court after a flawed and partial investigation by Islington police and Ms Webbe is determined to clear her name. Her focus remains, as it always is, on representing the people of Leicester East. As there is a legal case ongoing, she will be making no further comment about this matter.”
